What do we know about Tietze's syndrome?
Kardiochir Torakochirurgia Pol 2018; 15(3):180-182KT

Abstract

Tietze's syndrome is a benign, self-limiting arthropathy, without purulent character. The disease most often involves articulations: sternocostal, sternoclavicular, or costochondral joints. The characteristic symptoms are tenderness, pain and edema involving one of the aforementioned joints on one side. Diagnosis of Tietze's syndrome is based on physical examination (increase of palpation tenderness in the affected joint), laboratory tests (increase of inflammatory parameters) and imaging studies (USG, MRI). Differential diagnosis of Tietze's syndrome is based on exclusion of costal cartilage inflammation, coronary syndrome and inflammatory changes in the lung and pleura. Most commonly the treatment is conservative, in resistant cases surgical.
